Forthcoming Events

To let us know about events and meetings you would like publicised, please send us an email at webmaster@grahamstowncathedral.org

 

Unfortunately this year, due to Covid-19 we will not be able to hold the St George’s Fair in the format we have come to know and love. Instead, we will be having a series of fund-raising events. These are listed briefly below. For full details, click here.

Donation Drive, October 2020 – January 2021

Parishioners are encouraged to donate R200 (or more!) either as a lump sum or in monthly instalments. A big THANK YOU to those who have already donated. Please use EFT if possible, to minimize the spread of Covid-19. Donations can also be handed in at the Parish Office, or in the specially marked envelopes which are available at services in the Cathedral.

Parish Banking Details: 
Cathedral of St Michael & St George
Current Account, First National Bank, Grahamstown
Account Number: 52320792164
Reference: SGF 2020 Donation

Two Cathedral parishioners, who wish to remain anonymous, have offered to give R5,000 to encourage other parishioners to donate to this Appeal. They will release this donation when parishioners’ donations have reached the figure of R10,000. As at 8 November the total of donations received had passed R6,000, so we were over half-way towards meeting the challenge! A big THANK YOU to our anonymous donors!

Plants for Sale, Every Sunday after Church

Plants are available for Sale every Sunday after each Service.
Thank you to Jane Bradshaw for organizing and selling the plants.
The final Plants Sale will be at Church Square on Saturday 5 December.

Get Sharp

Andrew Tracey will sharpen your knives, scissors, shears, secateurs etc! Deliver to the Parish Office (not to Andrew’s home, due to Covid-19 safety precautions), and the office staff will contact you when your equipment is ready to collect.
